Tiny House Appliances: What to Use and Where to Get Them

One thing that people are often curious about in tiny houses, is what kind of appliances do you have? 

Do you cook on a hot plate? 

Do you have a regular washer and dryer? 

Do you use a window air conditioner to cool it off? 

Well, the answer to all of those questions can be yes. 

Because just like with a traditional size house… there are options.  And it’s up to you to decide what you want to have as far as appliances go.

I, personally, knew that I:

  • Wanted to cook meals so I wanted a regular oven and range,
  • Didn’t want to go to a laundromat or use a washboard, so I wanted a washer/dryer and
  • HATE washing dishes by hand so I wanted a dishwasher.

So these factors determined the appliances that I had in my tiny house.  But you can tailor your appliance set-up to match your specific needs and desires.  If you want to be totally off-grid, this will obviously have a major impact on the appliances you choose, as will your budget.
